By launching the ZEISS Victory 8x25 and 10x25 models as pocket versions, ZEISS is expanding the ZEISS Victory premium line with a convenient pair of binoculars for when you are out and about. "Thanks to their compact size, low weight and modern design combined with the best optics in their class, ZEISS is setting a new standard in the compact binoculars segment," says Tammo Lüken, Product Manager at Carl Zeiss Sports Optics GmbH.
In addition to extremely high-quality color fidelity, image definition and contrast, the ZEISS Victory Pocket binoculars also impress with the widest field of view currently available in their class: up to 130 meters with 8x magnification and 105 meters with 10x magnification at a range of up to 1,000 meters. The modern design with an asymmetrical bridge means the binoculars fold to a minimum size. "The low weight of 290 grams is the result of using lighter materials, such as a robust magnesium housing," explains Lüken. "Nature lovers are always well-equipped with the ZEISS Victory Pocket binoculars: these fit easily into your pants pocket and are the ideal companion for all outdoor activities."
The new ZEISS Victory Pocket binoculars are available at dealers starting in June 2017.
